This is a review of a split album between Brazil's C.O.F.O.C and Ortvsvs called "Underground Resistance" which was released by Ater Lunae Templi and we will start off the review with C.O.F.O.C a solo project that has been featured before in this zine and plays a raw form of black metal with elements of punk.
A very fast and raw bestial black metal sound starts off his side of the split along with a great amount of blast beats and demonic guttural growls and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and after awhile a small amount of screams are added into some parts of the songs and you can also hear the raw energy of punk and harsh noise at times and the music also brings in a ritualistic feeling to some parts of the songs, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover alcohol, darkness, occult and blasphemous themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from C.O.F.O.C and if you are a fan of raw bestial black metal with elements of punk and noise, you should check out his side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Beer Blood" and "Ravold".
Next up is Ortvsvs a solo project that plays a very raw and lo-fi form of black metal.
His side of the split starts out with a very dark and lo-fi guitar riff along with some grim screams a few seconds later and the raw style of black metal can also be heard in the background and the songs also have almost a primitive garage feeling at times while the music sticks mostly to a fast musical direction, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover darkness and blasphemy themes.
In my opinion Ortvsvs are a very great sounding raw lo-fi black metal project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out his side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "I" and "IV".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to the fans of true underground black metal. 8 out of 10.
